Who lives here?

Vic­to­ria; her hus­band, Shane (pic­tured), di­rec­tor of Shane Cook Homes; their chil­dren Wil­liam, 13, Elise, 11, and Ava, eight; plus

Ted the Airedale Ter­rier.

What was it like work­ing on your own house af­ter build­ing homes for other peo­ple? Shane: “I’m very pas­sion­ate about what I do, and it was re­ally won­der­ful to be able to take that pas­sion and use it for our own di­rec­tion.” Favourite time of the day in the home? Vic­to­ria: “The morn­ings are beau­ti­ful. I open the blinds and all the light comes through.” Best tip for keep­ing a home tidy with kids? Vic­to­ria: “Lots of cup­boards to hide ev­ery­thing away when you need to.”

Is this the for­ever home?

Vic­to­ria: “Ab­so­lutely! This was such a huge and amaz­ing process, and now we’re here to stay.”
